Pac-10 spring breakout players for 2010

Published on February 11, 2010 by     

TaliaWho will breakout and make a move toward stardom this season?

Most of these guys aren’t “new,” but they could make the next step up in their careers this spring.

Oregon

Diante Jackson, WR, RFr: Many thought Jackson would offer immediate help to the Ducks’ receiving corps as a true freshman, but, instead, he was a scout team star last year. The Ducks are looking for a dynamic, play-making presence at wideout and Jackson might be the guy.

Oregon State

The Unga brothers: The Beavers lost Keaton Kristick to graduation and Keith Pankey may miss 2010 with an Achilles injury, so there are opportunities at linebacker. These twin brothers — Kevin “Feti” Unga and Devin “Uani” Unga — could fight their way into the mix.

Stanford

Shayne Skov, LB, So: Skov started seven games last year as a true freshman and ended up third on the Cardinal with 62 tackles. The early returns are Skov will be first-team All-Pac-10 before he’s done.

UCLA

Cory Harkey, TE, Jr: With the departure of Logan Paulsen and Ryan Moya, Harkey will finally get his chance to take center stage. He caught eight passes for 41 yards and a touchdown in 2009. His production will be many times that in 2010.

USC

T.J. McDonald, S, So: First off, the son of former USC legend Tim McDonald is listed at 205 pounds. Really? He looks bigger — in a good way. And he’s a hitter. He had seven tackles as a backup to strong safety Will Harris last year, but he could play either free or strong.

Washington

Talia Crichton, DE, So: Crichton was forced into action last year as a true freshman — he started four games — because the Huskies lacked depth on the defensive line. With the departure of both starting ends — and the questionable status of Kalani Aldrich’s knee — Crichton is almost certain to ascend to a first-team spot. Here’s a guess he’s better prepared in 2010.
